One of my professors thinks I should try auto ethnography for my dissertation. While I’m trying to decide whether or not this is too narcissistic, I did decide to stat writing about the process of turning my class into a game from the beginning. Looking back at the video that got this project started, revisiting my game manual (that I haven’t even looked at since the first semester), among other things.
I think this will be good for my process as I’m trying to conceptualize both my research and the game project itself. I’m excited about looking back and I’m excited about where it’s going – specifically with the addition of “user-mods” and the co-creation of the perks associated with leveling up.
The key for me is staying in this excited place where I’m motivated to continue to tackle this monumental task of writing a dissertation.
